Cohen's Marianne

Rating: 3.0

I had this book for years
and the poem about you
locked between the pages

you cried out
waiting to be released
but I was blind

your name written down
as beautiful as ever
as dangerous as your tongue

as calm as the sea off Hydra
where impoverished seagulls
crashed into the sun

Mal, tell me about the title? Was it Leanord Cohen the composer? Absolutely loved the first stanza; you have wetted my appetite for more. Maybe, because I am Marianne, and hopefully the object of affection of some poet long ago....
